Liver Biopsy-nervous
« on: March 20, 2014, 10:41:36 AM »
I have to have a liver biopsy in the next month to help stage my liver disease.  Has anyone here gotten one of those?  What was your experience?  Did it hurt, if so, how much?  Did it hurt a long time after and did you have bad bleeding?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

I have not had one myself, but my dad's partner had a liver biopsy last week. She said she was made to lie down for a few hours after the procedure, and it was a bit uncomfortable, but that is it. I don't think she felt it was too bad.

Ok thanks.  I've heard from several that it hurt like crazy all the way to it wasn't that big of a deal.  Thanks for the feedback
